Beautiful Weather at ASC!

Everyone at the Alabama Skydive Center enjoyed the beautiful weather this weekend, with temperatures almost in the 70's! The airplane was packed all day as jumpers shed their layers of winter clothes. A huge welcome back to Todd Sellers, we are glad to have you back jumping with us! TF Lucas began his AFF certification early Saturday morning with Coach Chris Martin teaching the class. Ian Walker and Justin Rich graduated Accelerated Free Fall level 3 and Avinosh Deoshawar graduated level 2. TJ did two jumps and did great on both! Coach Jeff Fincher began his 4 way base training and got to work with some experienced skydivers on their exits out of our Caravan. A sunset 13 way was built and Ryan McCorkle had the pleasure of enjoying his first reserve ride, and Rob Morris tacked on another save in his log book. Ryan and Amy both owe beer for that one! A late night poker game was played with Thad Rice taking second place and TJ Lucas taking the gold! 

Sunday was even more eventful. Wes Guinn, Ashley Smith and Nick Raines all have new rigs!  TJ Lucas completed AFF levels 3-7, and became the first AFF student to graduate in 2 days in the history of Pell City skydiving! Way to go TJ, you probably slept good Sunday night. Ken Reeves and Wes Guinn went out and did a 2 way belly jump that was very interesting, you can ask them about it!  Laura Morris and Todd Sellers went on a 2 way sit fly jump and you can ask Todd to see the video. Jeff Fincher did another 4 way base training jump that was successful. After the sun was set, 2 AFF graduation pies were given to TJ Lucas and Kristi Taylor  (hers was a long over due one from 80 jumps ago!). 

Just a reminder, the Alabama Skydive Center will be closed Dec 23-24th, but our sister dropzone in Atlanta will be open! So if you are looking to jump, it would be a great time to go check out our friends in Cedartown, GA. Directions can be found on ascskydiving.com

Happy Holidays!
